A presentation from Museums and the Web 2010....

A presentation from Museums and the Web 2010.

Europeana, Europe's multimedia on-line library, museum and archive, currently grants access to the cultural holdings of Europe's twenty-seven member states. It includes more than 5.5 million books, maps, recordings, photographs, archival documents, paintings, and films from national libraries and cultural institutions. Europeana’s goal is to open up new ways of exploring Europe's heritage through free access to the collections and treasures via a single Web portal that is available in all the official EU languages (http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/ doc/factsheets /071-europeana-en.pdf).

Europeana is currently in prototype; the full service will launch later in 2010. The operational Europeana portal will provide improved search functionality and access to over 10 million objects. A follow-up release in 2011 will showcase multilingual and semantic Web features. ATHENA's role is to harvest holdings from Europe's museums and similar collections across the cultural sector, and to facilitate their integration into Europeana.

This paper will discuss this ambitious project from the point of view of the organizational strategies required to coordinate the pan-European, ATHENA Network, as well as the thesauri and multilingual developments that the partners are currently dealing with towards the integration of digital content.

  • The vision of Europeana project universe is for groups of institutions to get together, to aggregate their data, to create either sector or thematic websites which also be harvested by Europeana. [CLICK] In this vision, Europeana V1.0 and EuropeanaConnect are closely interlinked with each other. V1.0 will create the fully operational version of Euroepana over next 2 years [CLICK] This is an overview of the independent projects’ relation to Europeana and their main goal, which is to bring normalised, standardised content to Europeana. Some of them are “dark aggregators” in the making, such as EuropeanaTravel or EuropeanaLocal. These will not be accessible to users but will create aggregations of content available through Europeana. EFG is of major importance in this equation because of its film specificity. All these projects help creating Europeana, which is owned by the Europeana Foundation and funded by projects of the EU. The Europeana Foundation is a partner in each of these projects to try to help them in standards and normalisation and to ensure open communication channels. [CLICK] In the outer group, there are Digitisation or Preservation projects that support Europeana in its long term vision. ARROW for example addresses issues behind “Orphan and out of print work”. Arrow’s objective is to make it easy for libraries to digitise work and make it accessible to the network through rights clearance mechanisms. Orange coloured projects are portals in their own right as well as content providers to Europeana. HOPE, CARARE and ASSETS are new this year, as are Europeana foto, Europeana Regia, Natural Europe, Think Motion.......Europeana has no direct partnership involvement with these but is a subcontractor to advise on metadata preparation and for content ingestion.
  • The slide will be completed with action buttons to show aggregation, horizontal and vertical

    Title: Wilkinson Rasierhobel Date: 1. Drittel 20. Jahrhundert;  1901;  1933 Creator: Wilkinson Brothers Description: Rasierhobel gibt es nachweislich seit 1883/84. Sie waren vor der Erfindung der Sicherheitsrasierer durch King C. Gillette üblich. Um 1900 hingen viele Menschen der Idee an, dass durch das Ruhen des Rasiermessers oder der Klingen für die Zeit von einer Woche sie von sich aus sie wieder scharf werden. Deshalb stellten die Hersteller Rasiermesser stets für eine ganze Woche her oder die austauschbaren Klingen für Montag bis Sonntag. Die Namenstage wurden den Messern oder den Klingenhaltern eingeätzt oder eingestanzt. Der Behälter hat unter dem Griff den eingerollten Lederriemen versteckt. Sollte die Klinge sich nicht "erholt" haben, konnte sie mit Hilfe des hidden strop/Leder und des Rasierers selbst wieder geschärft werden. Der Kopf des Rasierhobels ist versilbert oder aus Silberstahl. Markie...

    • Readers, friends, if you turn these pages Put your prejudice aside, For, really, there's nothing here that's outrageous, Nothing sick, or bad — or contagious . Not that I sit here glowing with pride For my book : all you'll find is laughter : That's all the glory my heart is after, Seeing how sorrow eats you, defeats you . I'd rather write about laughing than crying, For laughter makes men human, and courageous .

    Title: The burning of London by the papists: or, a memorial to protestants on the second of September Date: 1714 Description: Religieus, anti-katholiek tractaat naar aanleiding van de herdenking van de Grote Brand van Londen, gepubliceerd bijna vijftig jaar na dato. De brand wordt gezien als een straf van God voor het zondige leven van de inwoners en de weinig godvruchtige levenswandel van koning Karel II, waarbij de katholieken als instrument van Gods wraak hebben gediend. De auteur waarschuwt dat de 'paapse furie' nog net zo gevaarlijk is als destijds, een waarschuwing die mogelijk is ingegeven door de problemen rond de troonsbestijging van George I. In het jaar van verschijnen van dit werkje (1714) was George I (wiens portret is bijgebonden) tot koning gekroond. Zijn troonsbestijging werd aangevochten door Jacobus Stuart (the 'Old Pretender'), de katholieke zoon van Jacobus II, die een jaar later tevergeefs in... Religious, anti-papist treatise in remembrance of the Great Fire of London, published almost fifty years after the event. The fire is seen as God's punishment for the sins of the city's inhabitants, and the ungodly lifestyle at the court of Charles II. Catholics have started the fire as the instruments of Gods wrath. The author warns that the 'popish fury' is as much of a threat now as at the time of the Great Fire. His warning may be inspired by the problems surrounding the succession of King George I. George I (whose portrait is inserted) had succeeded Queen Anne in the year of publication (1714). His succession was contested by James Stuart (the Old Pretender), son of James II. James Stuart would stage an unsuccessful rebellion a year later.

The photograph is from a series documenting the Third Anglo-Burmese War (1885-86), published in 1887 as 'Burmah: a series of one hundred photographs illustrating incidents connected with the British Expeditionary Force to that country, from the embarkation at Madras, 1st Nov, 1885, to the capture of King Theebaw, with many views of Mandalay and surrounding country, native life and industries'. Two editions were issued, one with albumen prints, one with autotypes, along with a set of lantern slides.

  • Europeana Workshop Paris Spring 2010
  • Jukka is 43 and works at a university as an ethnomusicologist. He is divorced, has no children, but about to marry his current girlfriend, who he met two years ago on one of his frequent journeys. He is very good at all sorts of electronic devices and heavily into online social networking. In his current job he works with automatic music analysis of Hindustani classical music Interests: Jukka’s main interest is Hindustani classical music (which was the topic of his PhD thesis) and he moderates a forum on this topic. At least once a year, he travels to participate in music festivals and conferences related to his job. He always looks for concerts in the towns and countries he visits. He spends most of his free time doing things related to his music interest and to his job, and it is difficult for him to separate job and free time. He is part of both professional and social networks related to his interests and job, with a lot of friends and contacts. Jukka is member of the society for ethnomusicology, and has previously held a position as a visiting professor at the University of Bombay. Media use: Jukka is technically literate, working with specialist databases and he will write a new search application or macro if the existing possibilities don’t work well enough for his purposes. He is an early adopter of mobile technologies, and is always on his iPhone, talking, texting, browsing the web and listening to mp3s downloaded from P2P-sites. Jukka downloads music from his favourite websites and whenever he gets a new lead on something interesting. He gets a lot of information from magazines specialised in internet technology or electronic media. He is heavily into social networking (500+ contacts on LinkedIn) and shares the newest information with his professional social network - if possible, in real time. Search strategy: Jukka is confident in his ability to use all kinds of search. He likes to explore search results and to pull in any new information he can find on his way. If a website looks promising he will explore all its corners, just in case something might prove interesting or entertaining. He shares his findings with his students and although in his classes he is strict about relevance and credibility of sources, he encourages them to go out and explore the internet for themselves. Relationship to Europeana: He found out about Europeana from a link on a blog. He read about Europeana in a blog, and thinks it could be interesting to follow. For him as an ethnomusicologist there might be new possibilities in the sound archives from all over Europe. Even if the site doesn’t have Hindustani music as such, there might be an opportunity to dig into musical influences across Europe. WORKGROUP 1.1 PERSONNAS - JUKKA

During the Victorian period there was a development in the understanding of the importance of vitamins and minerals to help create a healthy diet. Justus von Liebig first advertised his food for infants in 1867 and soon many other companies were producing food substitutes.

    Title: A landscape with a shrine and pilgrims Date: 1760;  c.1760 Description: Gouache painting of a festival scene at a shrine in Murshidabad, West Bengal, c. 1760. A shrine to Shiva flying a red banner from the roof pinnacle is depicted here, set in a landscape beside a pool in which people bathe. There are many people surrounding the temple, mostly on foot, others on elephants, camels and in palanquins. There is a camp of a wealthy visitor pitched on the left. This painting is interesting as it employs the bird's eye perspective and, with many areas of action, there is no central focus point.

She visited India in 1877-79 and completed over 200 paintings whilst there, painting landscape views as well. In her autobiography, 'Recollections of a happy life' of 1892, she wrote: &quot;I saw a whole street full of hunting chetahs and lynxes. The latter are the most restless wild little animals, which jump at their victim's throats like bull-dogs and strangled them. I saw a man put a piece of meat on the end of the bamboo cane and hold it up as high as he could, and one of the small animals (not much bigger than a cat) made a prodigious spring from the ground to...

    Title: Sue Pollard, actress& comedienne Creator: North East Midland Photographic Record Description: Susan Georgina Pollard was born on 7th November 1949 in Nottingham, England, the eldest daughter to Don and Hilda Pollard. Su's interest in the stage began when at the age of six she played an angel in the school nativity play. Whilst standing on a box announcing the arrival of the Angel Gabriel, she fell through the lid. Everyone roared with laughter and she loved it from that moment. At sixteen she began singing in charity shows and at working men's clubs and pubs whilst working as a secretary and her claim to fame from that time was that she was the first woman to sing Ave Maria in hotpants in a working men's club! After an apprenticeship at the Arts Theatre in Nottingham Su made her television debut in 1974 on the enormously popular talent show hosted by Hughie Green, Opportunity Knock...
